Women in the Broad MBA Program now have more opportunities to advance their careers and network with MBA students and companies nationwide thanks to a new partnership with the Forte Foundation.
The Forte Foundation is a consortium of top U.S. corporations and business schools whose goal is to offer support and guidance to women pursuing leadership positions in business.
“We’re very excited to be one of the schools chosen by the Forte Foundation,” says Maureen Hall, director of the Full-Time MBA Program. “This gives female students the opportunity to interact with a very large group of women who want to see each other be successful in business.”
The Broad College was accepted as one of three partner schools in the nation—a testament to the program’s reputation and the quality of the student population.
Some of the benefits Broad MBA students have access to include webinars, conferences, career fairs, networking opportunities with member companies, as well as résumé posting tools. Broad students have free premium membership during their MBA program and the opportunity to apply for a fellowship, which offers lifetime membership.
The new partnership builds on the Broad College’s longstanding commitment to supporting its women MBAs. The Broad Women MBA Association offers a variety of opportunities and activities throughout the year, including hosting guest speakers on campus and going on treks, like a recent trip to Dow during which Broad students met with executives.
This year, the Broad College is the host of the annual meeting of the Committee of 200—an organization of top women business leaders with more than 400 members in more than 100 industries. All women in the MBA program have the opportunity to attend this milestone event.
